A- Dark brown with a tan head

Smell- Coffee and chocolate. Strong aroma.

Taste-Follow the nose. HEavy coffee flavor with a hint of chocolate. Just enough to overcome the bitterness of the espresso

Mouthfeel- Smooth and heavy.

Overall- Great beer, definitely going to be sampling more from this brewery as I see it. An awesome coffee stout and the best beer I have had from an Asian brewery

12 oz bottle poured into tulip glass.

A- Pours black with dark ruby around the edges and two fingers of dark khaki head.

S - I get a lot of espresso beans in the aroma followed by a chocolate sweetness.

T - Espresso is the main flavor here, with a slight bitterness, followed by sweet milk chocolate and a tiny bit of roasted malt. The coffee flavor in this is great, and there is less roastiness than I was expecting for the style.

M - Moderate-to-full body with moderate carbonation. There's nothing special in the mouthfeel, just smooth and creamy. Nice stickiness in the aftertaste.

O - This is my first beer from this brewery and I have to say I'm impressed. They got the espresso flavor just right and it was well balanced.

Pours a deep dark brown with a finger of beige head that retained for a good long time. Roasted notes combine with some subtle coffee notes on the nose. The roast in the flavor profile is quite strong but I am not getting any distinct coffee notes. The bitter finish is excellent.
